Last Friday my son Iacopo and I went to the Barberino Outlet.
I have to say that it was not the first Outlet I shopped since the season sales began on 3rd January: I went to Serravalle Scrivia Outlet with my husband Alessio on 4th January (the first seasons sales’ Sunday!!!) and when we finished we had a nice dinner in a small restaurant called ‘Peccati di Gola‘ in the town of Gavi (Alessio wrote a feedback about it on Tripadvisor).
But, back to Barberino Outlet.
It is 90 km from Lucca, 30 from Florence. One can reach it from Florence with daily shuttles (15 euro per person) and it’s very close to the Highway exit Barberino del Mugello.
Maybe you already know Barberino because there’s a famous motor race track and a lake where one can relax and enjoy nature (it’s a dam, called Lago di Bilancino).
The Outlet looks like an ancient, small town as many Italian town are in reality or should be.. with a lot of shops, some coffee places and one Asian Restaurant where we had lunch with noodles 🙂
Prices were pretty good and season sales made them better, the outlet was not so crowded as it was Friday and so walking was nice and relaxing. It’s convenient if you need clothing mostly and you don’t want to lose your time.
So, if you want to spend a day around Barberino, why not?
And going back home is comfortable if someone else is driving!!! 😀
